Brass quintet invites audience to join in

Written by 

The Smoky Mountain Brass Quintet takes the stage 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, July 23, for the weekly Concerts on the Creek series in downtown Sylva, and the group encourages other brass musicians to join the fun.

Brass players of all ages are invited to bring their instruments to Sylva’s Bridge Park and play along with the quintet on two songs. The selections will be played just after intermission, and the music for the songs is available for download at: www.smbq.org/music/music.html.

“If you’re in the Sylva area, dust off your instrument cases, oil your valves and slides, and come join us,” said trumpet player David Ginn.

The Smoky Mountain Brass Quintet is a popular group that serves as quintet in residence at Western Carolina University. The quintet has performed nationally in such venues as Carnegie Hall, as well as internationally with tours of Russia, the United Kingdom and China. Their unique music ranges from early renaissance to rock.

In addition to Ginn, the band consists of Brad Ulrich on trumpet, Dan Cherry on trombone, Mike Schallock on tuba and Travis Bennett on French horn.

This free show is part of a summer concert series each Friday evening through Labor Day weekend.

Concerts on the Creek are co-produced by: the Town of Sylva, Jackson County Chamber of Commerce, Jackson County Parks & Recreation, Downtown Sylva Association, and Jackson Country Travel & Tourism.

And yet, here we were, drinks in hand, smiles plastered across our faces, as family members and dates for the wedding stood in front of us, eager to capture the moment we all were huddled as one.
